Subject: RE: What is Happening to our Folk Clubs
Sorry Raggy - we really do have nothing to say to each other
You have not put one alternative to what I suggest - just a string of unqualified insults
I have put up endless arguments - you respond to none - not my offer of examples of what I believe to be good, viable folksong, not the statements by others like Shirley Collins and Ian Campbell (despite it was you who first raised Campbell's name) - nothing
You keep a losely guarded secret what you believe to be folk song and offer only abuse
Anybody who regards commitment to a music "religion" is a dilettante - I don't believe folk song can afford them if it is to survive
